Catie Clune (Education Specialist)

Catie joined Turtle Island during the spring of 2014 as the Education Specialist. She previously worked as an intern at SPAWN, before returning to school to get her Masters in Education. During her time at the University of Washington she was able to align her interest in education with her passion for the environment during the IslandWood graduate residency program. She is passionate about sparking student’s curiosity in the outdoors and promoting outdoor play as an essential component to child development. She is a lifelong learner so you will find her banding barred owls, carving her own bow at a survival class, or naturalizing throughout California. Prior to graduate school Catie studied non-profit management and social justice through the Community Studies department at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
